Trivia

Michael Landon was the first choice to play Steven Bennett. He declined, feeling that he was so strongly identified with the role of the morally upright father Charles Ingalls on "Little House on the Prarie" that no one accept him portraying a sexually abusive father. See more »

Very Good Acting - Should be available on VHS video!
5 January 1999 | by (California Bay Area, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

The film is very well handled for such a sensitive subject. I saw it for the first time just last night, and was surprised to see Danson in the role. This film could serve to help stem the problems faced by our younger generation. I would recommend it as a should see.
